Publication: Sustainability impacts of increased forest biomass feedstock supply

Sustainably managed forests provide renewable raw material that can be used for primary/secondary conversion products and as biomass for energy generation.

Tuomasjukka et al from EFI evaluated the economic, environmental and social sustainability impacts of making the potentially available timber available with current and technologically improved value chains.

Their publication ‘Sustainability impacts of increased forest biomass feedstock supply – a comparative assessment of technological solutions’ in the International Journal of Forest Engineering is now available open access:
